About the FAIR Initiative
The University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) has undertaken a new FAIR (Familial, Associational, & Incidental Relationships) Initiative to correlate patients with other patients through certain defined relationships. The "FAIR-correlated" patients are made available through a set of i2b2 webclient plugins engineered to enable researchers to utilize such relationship information in their studies. Additionally, the open schema developed to encapsulate these "FAIR information", the simple FAIR Tabulation File defined, as well as a set of tools crafted to automatically generate the FAIR XML and to facilitate updating the i2b2 database, along with the aforementioned i2b2 webclient plugins, are also available, to all other academic institutions that are part of the i2b2 community, from our website.
